Old habits die hard, and it's even harder to break with tradition. But when a tradition
is beloved by all involved, there's no need to make a change. The same can be said
for simply sticking with a good thing--like a trusted business. This month we share
the stories of two local businesses, each of which has withstood the test of time.
Homeowners know that they're likely to need a hand with
maintaining or fi xing certain elements of their home. Having a
reliable plumber to call on can provide tremendous peace of
mind, and for more than 30 years,
MRC Plumbing & Heating
LLC has risen to the task. Mike Rowzee launched the business
in 1988, having obtained his master plumbing license. His wife Sandy quickly came
on board to serve as bookkeeper as they grew their young family.
Flash forward to today--and the company has seven plumbing vans and 14
employees, including Justin, the Rowzees' son. "We love working in our community,"
says Sandy, who notes that they enjoy working on new construction plumbing
services for commercial clients as well as maintenance and repair services for
residential customers. If you're dealing with a leaky faucet or need a major sewer
line repair--or anything in between, the MRC professionals will get the job done! To

Restaurants come and go, but
Tippy's Taco House is closing in
on three decades of providing diners--who come from near and
far--with fresh Mexican food. Owner Ron Bochette explains that
staff arrive well before the restaurant opens each day, prepping
various ingredients used to make guacamole, salsa, queso, and
many other items onsite.
And while "taco" is in their name, rest assured that they offer a full range of Mexican
specialties--burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, chalupas, and combination dishes,
as well as snacks, salads, side dishes, and desserts! And yes, if you want breakfast,
they offer that too, including breakfast burritos with chorizo, bacon, brisket, or taco
meat (or a vegetarian option), as well as eggs, cheese, and potatoes. Tippy's
recently introduced online ordering through their website and the ChowNow app
and be on the lookout for delivery options--coming soon through Postmates and
DoorDash. To learn more, call
